This DIY Make-up Remover is my latest favorite DIY Natural Product! I’ve obviously been on a journey to upgrade the ingredients in the products I use for quite some time now. One thing I didn’t try to DIY until recently was this make up remover. I have used just about every brand from Target and most recently switched to the Shea Moisture brand because that’s the only natural brand they carry. I was not impressed. I just felt like it didn’t really remove my make up and make my skin feel good after… SO I’m glad I decided to try out a DIY version!

The best part is that I already had all of the ingredients on hand… I use the same ingredients for my Face Wash, Body Wash, and All Purpose Cleaner. Talk about simple, huh?

There were a few things I needed to be true about this DIY Natural Make up Remover in order to find it beneficial

  1. Is it fast to make?

  2. Is it cheaper than the store bought stuff?

  3. Does it work?

The answer to all 3 was a YES! So obviously I needed to share this with you all :)


Natural Ingredients/Supplies Used

Castile Soap

Castile Soap is a vegetable based, gentle cleanser that is really good at fighting against unwanted germs. Plus, you can pronounce all of the ingredients :) I use Dr. Bronner's brand and it is more and more readily available in stores. I see it at target and my local grocery store! It can be found on amazon too, if you’re like me and shop for everything on Amazon.

I use it for just about every cleaning product in my home! Here are some I LOVE: DIY Body Wash, Laundry Detergent, All Purpose Cleaner

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil is Lightweight and Rich in Vitamin E. It’s ideal for oily skin because while it is hydrating, it also draws the impurities from the skin without stripping it. Bonus: it can be stored indefinitely without going bad.

Or, you could use Olive Oil - Known for its moisturizing properties and it can help calm skin inflammation.

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera Gel is a moisturizing compound, good for all skin types, that can help reduce inflammation (acne control) and promote the growth of new cells

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel is a plant based Astringent that contains chemicals called tannins. When applied directly to the skin, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria. I also love to use it as a toner and anti-itch remedy.
